INSULATION MATERIALS A. Air-conditioning Ducts inside the building : 38 mm thick for supply ducts and 25 mm thick for return ducts, flexible fiberglass insulation, K-value at 24C maximum = 0.037 w/m/K, 16 kg/m3 density, with factory-applied reinforced aluminum foil vapor barrier. Air-conditioning Ducts Exposed to Outdoor: 50 mm thick, Semirigid fiberglass insulation, K-value at 24C maximum = 0.035 w/m/K, 48 kg/m3 density, with factory-applied reinforced aluminum foil vapor barrier and aluminum/G.I. steel cladding. Fiberglass duct liner is absolutely not acceptable. In case it will be use in spirally-wound round duct, liner should be protected with perforated sheet.

PART 3 EXECUTION 3.01 PREPARATION A. Do not install covering before ductwork and equipment has been tested and approved. Ensure surface is clean and dry prior to installation. Ensure insulation is dry before and during application. Finish with system at operating conditions.

B.

3.02

INSTALLATION A. Ensure insulation is continuous through inside walls. Pack around ducts with fire proof self-supporting insulation material, properly sealed. Finish insulation neatly at hangers, supports and other protrusions.

Locate insulation or cover seams in least visible locations. Provide recovering jackets on exposed insulation throughout, including equipment room. Insulation located in crawl space, shafts and suspended ceiling spaces is not considered exposed. Use pre-sized paper under recovering at uneven insulated surfaces. Exposed Ducts: Secure rigid insulation with 50% coverage of adhesive and 12 gage galvanized impale anchor tabs at 400mm centers. Seal joints and breaks in ducts conveying air at less than room temperature with 102mm wide strips of open mesh glass cloth or tape imbedded between 2 coats of vapor barrier sealant. Point up other joints and breaks with hydraulic setting cement. Exposed duct insulation shall be protected by aluminum or galvanized steel sheet cladding. Exposed Rectangular Ducts: Secure rigid insulation with 50% coverage of adhesive and 12 gage galvanized impale anchor tabs at 400mm centers. Seal joints and breaks in ducts conveying air at less than room temperature with 102mm wide strips of open mesh glass cloth or tape embedded between 2 coats of vapor barrier sealant. Point up other joints and breaks with hydraulic setting cement. Exposed duct insulation shall be protected by aluminum or galvanized steel sheet cladding. Air-conditioning Ducts, Indoor: Adhere flexible insulation to ductwork with adhesive applied in 150mm wide strips at 400mm centers. Provide 16 gage (1.50mm) annealed tie wire and tied spiral wound or half hitched at 400mm centers for securing duct insulation until adhesive sets. Butt insulation and seal joints and breaks in ducts conveying air at less than room temperature with 50mm lap of foil adhered over joint. Acoustic Lining: Is absolutely not acceptable. Repair separation of joints or cracking of insulation due to thermal movement or poor workmanship.
